Harwich was originally known as Satucket until it was incorporated as a town in 1694. After incorporation the town was then named for the famous seaport in England. Harwich Port is a significant small seaport on Cape Cod.

Saquatucket Pennant was accepted by the Waterways Committee in 2001. Two colors meeting in the unmistakeable shape of an S. The red on the left represents the sunrise in the east over Monomoy Island, while the deep blue represents the color of Nantucket Sound. This burgee replaced an earlier more complicated pennant that resembled a fouled anchor giving the odd appearance of a dollars sign. Click to see colorized version of our famous town seal.
